[SPOILER-FREE] What'chya Think? - To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee

(goodreads)

Compassionate, dramatic, and deeply moving. To Kill A Mockingbird takes readers to the roots of human behaviour – to innocence and experience, kindness and cruelty, love and hatred, humour and pathos. 765 more words

I became the curator for @twt_buku last week and I managed to review five books. The first book I reviewed was To Kill A Mockingbird, a timeless classic, which had influenced the way I see this world since the first time I read this book at thirteen. 1,662 more words

To Kill a Mockingbird : Marginalia : The Roosevelts

There are many allusions in the second half of To Kill a Mockingbird, which I finished reading yesterday, but for the remainder of my sparse marginalia notes I am going to focus only on those relating to the Roosevelts. 354 more words
